The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch across much of Oklahoma following heavy rainfall across the region.

Heavy rains over the past 24 hours have triggered some flood warnings around the area. At least six flood-related deaths were reported across Texas. The most severe flooding was occurring in Fort Bend County where the Brazos River was cresting at record-breaking levels. We are expecting a break from this activity late tonight into the overnight hours across most areas, but isolated showers and thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.

"Widespread 2-4" is expected but there is the potential for isolated 6-8". Because of this even a quick 1 to 3 inches from a storm could cause localized flooding concerns. The forecast crest near Rosharon has been lowered to 52.1' late Thursday night into Friday morning.

On Wednesday afternoon Houston Transtar still reported more than 25 high-water locations from rainfall over the weekend.
